A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, the band featuring Brooklyn, New York native Sal Abruscato — who played drums on three TYPE O NEGATIVE albums ("Slow, Deep & Hard", "Origin Of The Feces", "Bloody Kisses"), as well as four LIFE OF AGONY releases ("River Runs Red", "Ugly", "River Runs Again", "Broken Valley") — on guitar and vocals, is recording its sophomore album for an early 2013 release via Steamhammer/SPV. Sal states, "The new A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH album just gets heavier and blacker every day. Vocals are almost done and then it's off to leads, mix, master and wrapping up artwork. Part two of an everlasting struggle with inner conflict and depression. This album is not recommended for the weak and suicidal."
A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH's debut album, "And Hell Will Follow Me", came out last year.
The band made its live debut on February 20, 2011 at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey as the support act for MONSTER MAGNET and SEVENTH VOID.
Abruscato previously stated about A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH's first CD, "This is my first album where I composed and play all instruments, including vocals. Along with co-producer/guitarist Matt Brown (SEVENTH VOID), we have accomplished a very fresh sound and it includes guest appearances by Bobby Hambel, Keith Caputo (LIFE OF AGONY) and Ulrich Krieger (LOU REED).
"It is the darkest music I have ever written and recorded in my life, back to my sinister roots and I believe the fans will learn a completely different side of me."
